Off the wall

It's that time of year when rod orders slow up and I have free time on my hands, especially when I can't summon up the energy to go fishing. So I dig out stuff I've had lying around and mess about. When I ordered butt caps from the 'States I also got something whacky. A trigger grip reel seat painted with skulls. I have no idea why!

There was an unpainted Axiom blank lying around so I thought I'd see what I could do with the pairing. The photos here are only a dry run. I've not made my mind up yet, but I am thinking that chrome framed rings whipped in black tipped with silver might suit the concept. Not to mention a skull and crossbones decal on the blank between the grips!
